tuning: (low to high) E A E A A E
(tune 2nd string B down to A, 3rd string G up to the same A, 4th string D
up to E.  Be careful of high tension if you use heavier gauge strings,
acoustic, etc)
Alternate tuning: E A D G A E (this requires less  retuning, but the
chords are harder, and the solo is harder to get right.  this could also
be played in standard tuning with power chords, but I think the droning
high E and A are important to the sound (your mileage may vary))

Chord Shapes (I figured these out, so they might not be right)
(I know they're not major chords, but for convenience I just named each
chord by its root)
